What is DIALux?
It is software. Available free of charge, DIALux is a global gold standard for designing, calculating and visualising lighting solutions in a myriad of indoor as well as outdoor arrangements. The software was created in 1994 – and has been maintained since then – by German company DIAL GmbH. As a tool for working with contemporary lighting designs and design implementation, the software meets all the requirements that a designer may have.
How does DIALux work?
DIALux allows you to create a lighting design featuring selected luminaire versions with their actual light and technical properties and parameters, while also making it possible to import these from the database. The software considers the international regulations, limits and norms applicable to the given working space and evaluates if the proposed lighting system meets the relevant legislative and health and safety requirements.
Not only can the software simulate a combination of daylight and artificial light. It can also take into account the circadian rhythms of the human body in the calculations.
What is the result?
The result is a 3D render of a lighting solution where distribution of lighting intensity (light distribution curves), light uniformity and unwanted glare are visualised. This professional material can be used to support your proposed lighting project and increase the chances of it being approved.
Why should I use DIALux?
This is a complex photorealistic rendering software bundle that allows import and export of .dxf and .dwg files from and to all CAD programmes as well as the use of .3ds files for realistic modelling and creating photorealistic videos and presentations. The software includes most norms and standards.
Sounds great! How do I start?
